In spite of such good line up of channels and excellent service the stock of this company does not seem to be faring so well. Sirius merged with its competitor XM Satellite Radio, and though both provide separate services under one company, the stock has continued to decline. The price has been in the range of $0.12 to $0.38 and still there is no sign of improvement. Many experts feel that the company has a poor capital structure and a weak management team. But many of the investors, seem emotionally attached to the company and still continue to invest in its stock.
